Prayers For Victims Of The Tsunami
Episcopal News Service] Committed to rebuilding communities and responding to individuals' and families' basic needs, Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) has partnered with churches throughout Asia this past year to help millions of people whose lives have been affected by the December 26, 2004, tsunami.
Today is St Stephen's Day, but it will forever also be remembered as the anniversary of the devastating tsunami in South Asia.
We remember the victims and their families with this prayer from Grace Cathedral, San Francisco from last year:
Prayer For The Victims of the Tsunami
-- by Wilma Jakobsen
Most merciful and compassionate God,
Giver of Life and Love,
hear our prayers
and let our cries come unto you.
The Rev. Wilma T. Jakobsen is an associate pastor for liturgy and justice at All Saints' Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California. She is a native South African, and previously served as Anglican chaplain at the University of Cape Town.
